Wardrobes and Armoires for Boys

Posted on

With its origins dating back to 16th-century England, the piece of furniture commonly referred to as a wardrobe was originally called a "press." The piece was defined as having two compartments for storing clothing — some laid flat and some hanging up. The term "wardrobe" came to describe the piece by the 17th century, but it didn't take its place as a significant piece of bedroom furniture until the late 19th century, when mass production of furniture and growing affluence made wardrobes both available to the masses and increasingly necessary for storing excess clothing. Of course, since then, its popularity has been eclipsed by built-in clothing closets as well as dressers.

Today's wardrobes or armoires sometimes allow for hanging storage, while other times they open to reveal a combination of drawers and shelves. Basically, the characteristic they all have in common with historic wardrobes is that they include doors, behind which clothing (and other items) can be stored.

Country Willow Kids currently carries two wardrobes suitable for boys: The MyRoom Varsity Metal Cabinet and the Varsity Collection Wardrobe.

myRoom Collection Varsity Wardrobe

With a Mid-century Modern appeal, the myRoom Collection incorporates mixed materials while keeping lines clean, seamlessly blending form and function. Gray wood finish combines with metal bases and drawer pulls for added style. Available in light and dark color finish options, the myRoom Collection is suitable for girls as well as boys. While it certainly coordinates with the remainder of the myRoom Collection, the Varsity Metal Cabinet takes on somewhat of an Industrial style, with its all-metal composition. The piece measures 28 inches wide by 19 inches deep and stands 71 inches tall.

The framed panel doors open to reveal 4 shelves as well as a roomy bottom drawer. Like other pieces in the myRoom Collection, the Varsity Wardrobe includes safety features such as anti-tip hardware and adjustable levelers for added stability. Drawers include removable partitions.

Varsity Collection Wardrobe

Combining traditional style with casual appeal, the Varsity Collection can also be used for boys as well as girls of any age. With simple, modern design elements, it can easily bridge the gap as your child transitions from childhood to teen and even early adult years. The Wardrobe in this distinguished collection measures 33 inches wide by 18 inches deep and stands 74 inches tall. True to its name, the piece takes on a locker-like look.

Behind the two doors, you'll find a single stationary shelf along with two adjustable shelves, three spacious drawers, and wire-management cutouts. On the back sides of the doors, you'll discover a few extra additions such as shallow storage boxes, a corkboard, and a mirror. Like all pieces in the Varsity Collection, this Wardrobe is crafted from kiln-dried wood, and drawers utilize soft, self-closing metal drawer guides. Safety features include adjustable levelers and anti-tip hardware. The name for the finish is "Jersey."
